Doing Business in the Brazilian Protests

Listen in pop-out player

Brazil's President speaks to her nation after days of mass protest - but what about the businesses already crippled by the disruption? We get the latest from the streets of Sao Paulo and talk to a restaurant owner there whose business is feeling the effects of days of protests.

And still the smartest guy in the room? The former head of Enron, at the heart of one of America's biggest corporate frauds gets a cut in his jail sentence for cooperating with the authorities. We're live with journalist and author Bethany McLean who has written extensively on the Enron scandal.

We talk to Kai Ryssdal of our US partner programme Marketplace about his interview with the boss of MTV, and ask how does a cool TV channel stay relevant if its audience keeps growing up?

Plus we take an irreverent look back at the news stories affecting the world of work and money this week.
